the rules for coloured walls
Limit yourself to no more than three colours in total. If you’d like to use more, choose a lighter or darker shade of one of those colours.
Keep the look cohesive by selecting colours that work in harmony. Here, Cathrine has gone for muted shades of blue, pink and green.
Older homes where rooms are more separate lend themselves to different colours. Add white trims and keep floors neutral for balance.
